I do not remember your zone but here in Zone 7 I planted about 45 persimmon 
rootstocks and waited until they began to bud out and then I grafted with 
100 % success. A first time for me to get 100%.
I like to cut my graftwood in Jan and store in moist cedar chips in the 
redfrigerator until time to graft.

Good Luck
